A couple of celtic knot peppermills. One is cherry with birch strands for the knot … the other is maple with black walnut.

The kits came from http://www.woodturningz.com/
I have received a couple of PM’s wanting to know how I made the knots. Here’s how I made them:
1) Blank needs to be square. In this case, it was 3” x 3” x 14”. Number the sides (1, 2, 3, 4) and pre-drill the blank.
2) The kerf required for these knots is 3/16” (187.5 thousandths).
3) I milled the filler to 145.5 thousands, and laminated .20 thousandths veneer to each side.
4) Set the height of the blade on my table saw to about 1/8” below the height of the blank (2 7/8* in this case)
5) With side #1, set the miter gauge on my tablesaw to 30 degrees and cut the kerf. To get the 3/16” kerf, I milled a spacer and used a stop-block to get the proper kerf width.
6) Glued the filler into the kerf, clamped and let dry for 4-6 hours.
7) True up the sides on the blank and, back on the tablesaw, repeat the kerf cut on side #3.
8) Glue in a filler strip, let dry, trim, and repeat for sides #2 and #4. Note that all kerf cuts are made the same depth and direction.
9) Turn as you would ay other blank.

Very nice. The veneer really sets it apart.

The veneer made milling the filler strips a little more difficult, but I think it is worth the effort. I am just not accustomed to measuring woodworking projects in thousandths!

Well done on this project, I have yet to attempt one of these, but it is on my list at some point
